Holmgren, 20, will miss the 2022-23 season due to the injury, which occurred 10 days ago as he defended LeBron James on a fast break during a CrawsOver Pro-Am game in Seattle.

The 7-footer was the No. 2 overall pick in the NBA draft in June. He averaged 14.0 points and 8.4 rebounds in five games for the Thunder at the Las Vegas Summer League.
